Webelos dens as patrols and more older Scout issues …
Catching up on email questions this week I’ll talk about Webelos dens working the patrol method and discuss the causes of at least some older Scout problems. (If you listen very carefully you may detect a rant this week).
Over thirty years ago I had 18 Webelos in my Webelos den. I survived that year (as did many of the Webelos). Webelos is challenging and fun, enjoy the moment, don’t get ahead of your Webelos and don’t treat the experience as junior boy Scouts. The next few years fly by, don’t miss a minute.
What do you do when you see all the older Scouts hanging around shooting the breeze at their own table during troop meetings? One Scouter tries to approach the problem. They are stymied by adults who don’t seem to see a problem and Scouts who, while willing, are prevented from making any headway by adults who do everything for them.
I’ll also share some messages from the mailbag.
